Make Your Community a Better Place

Whether you are a professional businesswoman, a retiree, a stay-at-home mom, or an aspiring college student, the DAR offers meaningful opportunities for women to become involved in the community. 

Service to America

Members share acts of kindness by volunteering at local veteran hospitals, sending care packages to troops stationed overseas, restoring historical sites, cleaning up cemeteries, providing a nourishing meal to the needy, caring for animals at humane societies, and other service projects

Volunteer Information Specialists (VIS)

As a VIS for the DAR, you can work on projects from the comfort of your own home. If you are savvy with a computer and have skills in areas such as marketing, website content, graphic design, social media, writing, or photography, the hours that you spend developing creative content for your chapter count as service hours!

Service Projects

Quilted Hearts Project

Our chapter recently devoted time to a Quilted Hearts project. Volunteers created  handsewn heartshaped quilts that fit into the palm of one's hands and were placed throughout the community as inspiration to others.

Historic Cokesbury College - community event volunteers

Several members volunteer their time and talent to promote and assist with community events held at Historic Cokesbury College. This landmark, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is an historical gem for the local community and upstate region of South Carolina. In the spring, the college hosts a delightful Easter egg hunt for families across the community. Each winter, the college opens its doors for an old-fashioned Christmas celebration with music, tours and refreshments.

Humane Society - volunteers

While we have many animal lovers in our chapter, there is one particular member who goes above and beyond to assist community members with their beloved pets. Every week, she tirelessly dedicates her time to volunteering with the Greenwood Humane Society, dedicating her entire day to transporting  dogs and cats to the nearest low-cost spay and neuter clinic - which is nearly 70 miles away. Following their surgery, she returns them safely back to the Humane Society where their owners are often waiting to take them home. The free transportation service is a tremendous service for families who lack transportation or funding through a private vet.
